I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!
I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.
Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.
Let me begin with this:
I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.
You can begin by watching "The Myth of Talent" here:

"Home For the Holidays"
The menace of Cormorant Family Christmas materialized slowly as, one by one, two by two, the already distressed and petulant kinsfolk began arriving at the yearly gathering, bracing themselves for the hollow but requisite conventions of spurious exuberance, forced benignancy, overeating and the annual swapping of meaningless tokens and doodads.
Why did they do it?
Because it reminded them that at no other time of the year would life be quite this stressful.
Joy to all!

Be in the Present
If you are plagued by past failures or past emotional pain,
remember that you have to create that newly, each time, in the present for them to have a continued effect on you.
